From Guatemala's national bird to Amphibian fish and Jaguars, Guatemala's rich wildlife is one of the main reasons why many tourists come to this country. However, a big a part of the local wildlife population is endangered due to the consequences of global warming, unsustainable tourism, a growing human population and the like. If you are at all interested in becoming a wildlife conservation volunteer in Guatemala, your help at one of the many projects is urgently needed.
In particular, Guatemala is a great place to work as a volunteer in sea turtle protection. Of course, this comes with the added perk that you will be stationed close to the ocean, which means that you will get to enjoy everything that the ocean has to offer in your spare time. As a wildlife conservation volunteer in Guatemala, you might even help in saving the local primate population - it all depends on which volunteer work in Guatemala you will choose!
